Yes, I have been so lucky with my Kock Pouch. I have been very blessed indeed.
Since my valve doesn't leak, I'm really thinking I will probably try another dilation if needed.
This catheter I have in now will definitely scar with a good opening because of the stiffer catheter. So it's a wait and see.
I am still so for the Kock Pouch! I wish they would come up with a valve that didn't have issues. They need to take a good look at the valve I had made by Dr. Beahrs, that was quite the valve.
Everytime I'm at the Mayo Clinic, they ask me if I have any questions......Hehehehehe, I say yes, "When are you going to start doing the Kock Pouch again?" I think they've all heard of me by now.....LOL. I have shown what this Kock Pouch means to me, and so many others!
I also noticed there is a 30 Fr. Red Latex Catheter too. All it needs is bigger holes and it would be an outstanding catheter for everyday use. Thinking all the time for better catheters. Especially if you have trouble getting the catheter to go through the valve, like me with my stricture.
I still love my Kock Pouch!!!!! Everytime I go to Mayo, I use it, for "Advocate" reasons too! I also can message him, Dr. Dozois, the surgeon.
